  • Quotes (4)

    • Greg: (After watching a video showing the first "zombie" walking down a hallway) Dead rising, birds falling from the sky, fish dying in rivers. Should we be looking for the Anti-Christ to make an appearance?
      Ray: Haskell being on the loose is enough to fill that quota.

    • Ray: You know what I believe? I believe that people that bring suffering and pain into this world should have it repaid to them tenfold, either in this world or the next one. Doc Robbins: Careful. Evil has a way of making friends with the good and dragging them into the darkness.

    • Dr. Aden: Knowledge demands its payment. Ray: It's always nice when somebody picks up the bill for you, though.

    • Dr. Aden: San Francisco girl, huh? Left my heart, and half my cerebral cortex in Frisco. You ever see The Dead play the Fillmore? Sara: No, uh... too busy with the dead everywhere else. Dr. Aden: Lucky you.

    Trivia (1)

    Allusions (3)

    • There are a number of Alice in Wonderland references throughout the episode e.g. the Doctor tells Alice he is not 'your hookah smoking caterpillar'

    • This episode is filled with Fringe references. The lab, the crazy old scientist, the metal chamber in the lab, they even say the doctor studied Fringe Science!

    • Title: Turn on, Tune in, Drop Dead alludes to the popular phrase "Turn on, tune in, drop out" which was coined by Timothy Leary in the 1960s with reference to the drug LSD.
